plywood, primer, bottle caps, recycled copper roofing, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish is made with Budweiser and Budweiser Select caps. This was commissioned for a 50th birthday gift, and the client specifically requested BudWeiser caps. The fins and tale are cut from an old enamel beer sign. The eye is a jar lid. All the caps are partially crimped and then nailed to double-primed plywood with brass nails. Note that the crowns on the black Bud Select caps are all aligned (trickier than you would guess when crimping the caps to overlap).
